    when I worked in broadcast journalism, pay was for shit, you had to go out and dig for stories, and the guy reporting them on the air was the same guy who had stood in shit to get the story. I remember a fellow at a TV station where I worked doing a report with a large bandage on his ass where he’d been shot in the process of getting the story. That kind of stuff doesn’t happen anymore. 99% of the clowns doing on air news don’t know shit and, indeed, wouldn’t recognize shit if they stepped in it. So, the result is that we get a lot of shit for news. Now, ain’t that some shit?
